The James Hunter Six are a soul-blues band from Essex, England. Their immediate, gritty sound provides the backing for their songwriter/guitar slinger namesake, whose weathered yet buttery smooth voice has made the group a critical favorite and a touring sensation. Given their intensity and virtuosity, no less than Allen Toussaint, Sharon Jones, and Van Morrison can be counted as fans and have shared stages with them. Though they've been together since the early '90s, they've been billed as the James Hunter Six on recordings since 2013's Minute by Minute. The band signed on to the Daptone label in 2013 and recorded 2016's Hold On! direct to eight-track tape at Penrose Recorders in Riverside, California. ~ Thom Jurek
